Wood floors, from natural hardwoods to engineered woods (laminate), are found in homes and businesses everywhere. From kitchens and living rooms to office entryways, gymnasiums, and basketball courts, wood floors represent a significant investment that must be protected.
Even the most durable wood floor needs special care to rejuvenate its appearance from time to time. Scuffs and scratches caused by foot traffic, rolling office chairs, bleachers, or simply everyday life take their toll on the wood floor.
To maintain the beauty and aesthetic appearance of wood floors, regular preventative maintenance with proper chemicals and equipment is essential. Preventative maintenance begins with a good entrance matting program that catches dirt, grit and dust. Regular dust mopping, spot mopping, and damp mopping will help maintain a high level of appearance for up to a year before restorative procedures must be performed.
